    I have Tolman already but I’m underwhelmed a little, huge minutes last week as they lost 2 interchange
    players and it was a tight close game which suits his style.

    I’d be going AFB he is looking good and like a Hasler fav, his TBs have been his only real attacking stats most of his points have been from RM and Tackles. Yes would have a lower floor but his ceiling is so much higher then Tolmans.

    1.AFB
    2.Twal
    3.Tolman

    2 other options are Vaughan at the top end of your budget or June Paulo at the lower end. He is getting consistent min with a 40 avg all base stats, if he can add some TBs or Offloads like past years could push to 50, looks to have found some fitness

    You know what Shanbon, went back and looked at Paulo and I think he will do the job nicely.
    At his price it means I can do lots with the Friend money
    Krump mentioned him a couple weeks ago as well and he is still going great guns.

    Looking at the way he is being used with playing the first 30mins and come back on at 50mins seems to be working for the eels
    He was one of their big off season signings, has a big motor and can punch out a big score on his day with good attacking stats.
    Even if he gets me 40points minimum for the next 6 weeks (while I jump on all the fallen guns), then he has done his job.

    That lets me go Friend to Bateman for the second trade :ThumbsUp:

    Round 5 Trades 314k in the bank

    John Bateman 742k (predicted 55-60pts)
    Fun lively guy to watch, been trying to get him in sooner but have had injuries to take care of
    Having DPP is handy for my team and gives me instant depth to my 17 while being a keeper ctr and playing rd 12 byes
    He has shown he can score very well, and he hasn't even scored a try yet in a Raiders team getting better each week.

    Payne Haas 231k (predicted 30+ pts)
    Last minute trade in due to being named at lock, huge frame and huge potential with big PPM
    If can get some decent minutes for a couple weeks then will roll the dice and hope for the best he cements a spot in the team
    No real expectations but he looks a great option to bring in for an injured Napa so great timing for him to appear now

    I like your approach this year Booze, I scored 964 with a "cookie cutter" team. Your high scoring hookers seem to balance out the light WFB and still get you a top score.

    Thinking along these trades this week

    McCullough/Burns out   Ponga/Tedesco in

    If my team can do something similar to last week,not having to rely on the cheapies at the back means hopefully in for a chance for some fried chicken haha
    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

    Round 6 Trades 129k in the bank

    Kalyn Ponga 648k (predicted 50pts)
    The cheapest you will get him all season, DPP gun who can go large on his day and does it all
    Goal kicking helps give him a stable base, back to WFB where he will go back to killing it.

    Chanel Harris-Tavita 320k (predicted 40-45pts)
    Well after to a solid start to his career he seems to be in favour as the Warriors young half.
    He has a decent attacking game and goal kicks so these are big positives
    If he can average even 40 for the next 3 weeks he makes 150k which will be handy, wanted him earlier but better late then never
    The downsides are his defense but if he can plug away while chancing his arm then who knows where he will finish

    Not sure why you would be targeting mid rangers like Sutton. You already have 1 too many, not being able to play Mahoney last week. Surely the surplus of Hookers should be the key target to trade some in to cash up to some keepers that you can play instead? Key weaknesses are halves and WFB to use that cash on by ditching McCullough and playing Mahoney instead for similar scores.

    Have been doing some thinking over the past day about my team setup and what risks I want to take.

    I see where you are coming from and the plan originally was to bring in x2 WFB this week.
    Have been chopping and changing on 2 guns in vs 1 cow/1 gun but think will lean towards the latter to give me more flexibility and depth for this week at least.
    It will be only for this week with the extra cover in the 14-17, just want the extra coin in the bank and some flexibility next week on trades which this gives me.
    While I love looking at the solid 3 at WFB, don't want to get caught with a couple injuries and no way to fix given i have no half/frf cover whatsoever going that way

    McCullough is an easy swap next week to a Tedesco regardless if I go that route now, being able to cash out a couple cows this week is good too.

    Ogden and Sutton are really just some options that I had considered, Sutton the past 2 weeks so just watching really.
    It really comes down to the DPP updates next week but ultimately I am flexible and will be after a FRF/2RF player soon for cover regardless.

    Anyways cheers for your comment and making me think over my trades some more
